There’s only so much you can do to prevent and treat stretch marks. Whether you’re going through a growth spurt, growing an actual little human inside your belly, or just going about your normal life genetically predisposed to getting them, stretch marks are completely normal. THAT SAID, just because something is NORMAL doesn’t mean you necessarily want to deal with it.
Through the years, I have tried many different oils in pursuit to hunt down a product that would permanently cure me from my pregnancy induced stretch marks. Sadly, I am still continuing the hunt even after today. After using this product, I have noticed a definite change in visibility, and even though the oil has not miraculously relieved me from my scars, I have only used the product for seven days and can feel a difference to my skin. The oil smells pleasant, it absorbs lovely and I am not left with any sticky feeling or oily residue after you have rubbed it into the problem area. The oil comes in a 100ml bottle with an easy pump action nozzle and was safely delivered in a secure package with bubble wrap keeping it safe.
It isn’t really a product that has made my life any easier. Perhaps it has made me take a bit of time for myself in the morning and evening to sit down and take care of my skin, when usually I wouldn’t bother, as I am busy with three kids. So it has been nice to take some time for myself, even just for a minute! The only complaint I do have is something I noticed a few days after using this product, but this is something I find with any oily product. The appearance of blocked pores! I ensured I exfoliated the area and used the product only every second day which seemed to stop the pores from clogging up.
Apply on affected area of the skin and massage through twice a day. Can be used all over as a hydrating nourishing oil. For external use only. In case of reaction or irritation seek medical attention.
